Strengthening small area demographic estimates in Latin America thumbnail
Strengthening small area demographic estimates in Latin America

Accurate mortality, fertility and population information are fundamental for program and policy development and monitoring in health and other sectors. The most suitable data source for local death and birth data is a well-functioning CRVS system, but these are underdeveloped in Latin America, with varying levels of incompleteness between and within countries. The Small Area Demographic Estimation in Latin America Workshop was held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from 19-20 March 2018. The workshop brought together regional and international demographic experts to discuss methods and approaches to improve the evidence base for mortality, fertility and population at the small area level in Latin America.

Summary: Strengthening Peru's national death registry information system

In Perú, only 54 per cent of deaths have a COD recorded, and about 30 per cent of these causes are classified as poorly-defined or not useful for the formulation of public policy. In response to this, key CRVS partners developed the National Death Registry Information System (SINADEF), which is an application allowing doctors to complete death certificates in real-time immediately after verifying that a death has occurred.
